      Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

      Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for May, detailing what is
      new in the Florilegium this month.

      If you know someone who has written a good article on some aspect of
      the SCA or of the time period and cultures we study, please urge them
      to contact me and send a copy of their article for possible inclusion
      in the Florilegium. This is a good way for them to get some
      recognition for their work as well as help or entertain other folks
      across the Known World. Class handouts and A&S documentation are also
      good sources of info that others may find useful.

      As mentioned below, May is also the anniversary of the SCA. 40 Years.
      Wow. From this perspective things often look like they were pre-
      ordained and that the SCA was meant to be the way it is. Not
      necessarily. See the various files in the SCA-STORIES section of the
      Florilegium for stories of the early days of the SCA. And if you were
      around in the early days, please consider writing up something, from
      a simple message to an article about those early days for the
      Florilegium and let those of us who weren't playing then, know what
      it was like.

      A Blending of the Past and Present

      Over the past sixteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been
      collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail
      lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make
      this information available to others, I have placed this information
      in a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

      The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org

      I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an
      article that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send
      it to me for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for
      more details.

      I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping
      me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials,
      editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more

      For those who would like to help support the Florilegium project in
      another way, I have added a PayPal donation button on the top page of
      the site. Any donations, while not tax deductible, do help pay the
      overhead costs of keeping the site running.

      THLord Stefan li Rous Ansteorra stefan at florilegium.org

      the SCA-STORIES section. There are first-hand accounts of the early
      days of the SCA and of many of the kingdoms in there, as well as some
      SCA stories and a lot of humor.
